MASSES THIS WEEK AT OUR LADY OF CONSOLATION:

Sunday 9 August at 10.30 – Holy Mass, preceded (hopefully) by Confessions – in the Calvary area of the Sanctuary: Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Mass Intention: The repose of the soul of Bridie Cobb RIP

Wednesday 12 August at 12 Noon: Feria in Ordinary Time, Week 19. Mass Intention: The Maronite Catholic, and other, victims of the recent explosion in Beirut 

 

PLEASE NOTE: From this Saturday (8th Aug), the wearing of face coverings in all Catholic churches, is mandatory at Mass

AT MASS – please follow the directions given by the stewards.  Also, to minimise risk of infection, there will be no hard-copy newsletters or Mass sheets distributed at the Church entrance – Newsletters will continue to be available on-line only. Thus, please bring your personal missals to Mass for the readings, or on the day, click on: https://www.stjohnshorsham.com/team

It is with great sadness that we announce the departure from this life of Bridie Cobb, who went to The Lord on the morning of Monday 3rd August

May she rest in peace.                         Requiescat in pace

 Fr David Irwin – Fr David has just been discharged from hospital (Fri 7 Aug), and is recuperating at home. He is in good spirits but he will not be celebrating Mass at West Grinstead for the time being.

On-line Masses – weekly and Sunday – continue to be offered from several churches in our diocese (and beyond). Please click on the link at the bottom of this page – ‘Download this week’s Newsletter’ – for access to those links.

During lock-down, we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the many of you who have already donated financially in different ways – directly on-line or via the diocesan ‘JustGiving’ facility.

Do please continue with your generosity, but now that lock-down is easing, we would urge you to consider setting up a Standing Order as an alternative to our Sunday ‘plate collections’. This is always the most convenient method for planned giving (for all concerned) – already used by so many of us at West Grinstead – and it is vitally important at this time, when the Church’s income has diminished considerably. Regular Standing Orders can be for any amount, no matter how small – just please give what you can afford. This is a golden opportunity to express our sincere thanks for our God-given faith, and for our beautiful, unique Shrine Church and community. Pope Francis said ‘Generosity enlarges the heart’, and we are most grateful indeed for your generosity of heart.

To set up a Standing Order, please contact Steve Scallan or Geoff Callister via email: geoff.callister@gmail.com, or phone Kate or Susan at the Priest’s House on 01403 710273.

Alternatively, if you prefer, cheques in lieu of plate collections can be sent to the presbytery: Priest’s House, Park Lane, West Grinstead, Horsham, RH13 8LT. They should be made payable to ‘RCD A&B Our Lady of Consolation’.

Finally, the JustGiving process is still active: Just click on the  link: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/parishoffertory

It is a very simple process, but it is important to state the name of our parish – ‘Our Lady of Consolation & St Francis, West Grinstead’ – in the comments field, to ensure donations end up with the parish. Also, JustGiving defaults to a suggested ‘platform fee’ of an extra 15%, but this can be reset to any amount down to zero.

THANK YOU

During lock-down, we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the many of you who have already donated on-line, via the diocesan ‘JustGiving’ link: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/parishoffertory

Do please continue with your generosity.

It is a very simple process, but it is important to state the name of our parish – ‘Our Lady of Consolation & St Francis, West Grinstead’ – in the comments field, to ensure donations end up with the parish. Also, JustGiving defaults to a suggested ‘platform fee’ of an extra 15%, but this can be reset to any amount down to zero.     Thank you indeed!

Alternatively, if you prefer, cheques in lieu of plate collections can be sent to the presbytery: Priest’s House, Park Lane, West Grinstead, Horsham, RH13 8LT. They should be made payable to ‘RCD A&B Our Lady of Consolation’.

MANY THANKS ALSO to those of you who have so kindly offered to set up Standing Orders in lieu of our Sunday ‘plate collections’. This is always the most convenient method for planned giving (for all concerned) – already used by so many of us at West Grinstead – and it is vitally important at this time. Regular Standing Orders can be for any amount, no matter how small – just please give what you can afford. This is a golden opportunity to express our sincere thanks for our God-given faith, and for our beautiful, unique Shrine Church and community. Pope Francis said ‘Generosity enlarges the heart’, and we are most grateful indeed for your generosity of heart.

To set up a Standing Order, please contact Geoff Callister via email: geoff.callister@gmail.com, or phone Kate or Susan at the Priest’s House on 01403 710273 – thank you.

THANK YOU
